The best way to pull your kids away from watching cartoons is to make a cartoon yourself. You won’t need anything complex, only glue, scissors and a lot of colored paper. I’m sure that playing puppet theater with funny Qumi-Qumi characters and inventing your own exciting story will be no less interesting than watching cartoons on the screen. Have a fun evening with Yusi and her funny friends from the bright world of Qumi-Qumi! It will take you a lot of colored paper and colored cardboard but the craft is worth it!
Step by Step Funny Qumi-Qumi Paper Dolls Craft
The supplies are a lot of colored paper, colored cardboard, ice cream sticks, scissors, a sharpie, a pencil, a glue stick
First of all, let’s make Yusi. Cut out some doll parts of burgundy paper
Take some pieces of pink paper and glue them to the doll’s hair, then add some yellow paper pieces there, too, then place a piece of white paper on top. Attach the hair on top of the doll
Grab two circles of white paper and glue them to the doll to form eyes. Draw two lips on pink paper, cut them out and glue under the eyes. Glue a white paper line and three yellow triangles underneath
Now make two arms: cut out two lines of black paper, glue burgundy and then white pieces of paper on them, and the resulting pieces are to be attached to the doll
Now make legs: cut out some black lines, attach pieces of burgundy and yellow paper on them, cut the excess and glue the legs to the doll
Line up the doll and draw the details with a sharpie. Attach some eyelashes of black paper and a blue earring
Add an ice cream stick and voila!
The second character is Juga. Cut out a silhouette of blue paper and attach some blue hair using a glue stick. Glue a yellow and a green paper line to the doll, attach pieces of blue paper to the hair and cut off the excessive paper. Attach two eyes, which are circles of white paper, and a blue circle for the nose, and purple lips, add a white line for the teeth. Then glue a blue line to the body underneath. Cut out two legs and arms and glue them to the doll. Take a black sharpie to draw the details and line up the whole doll. Attach an ice cream stick and add some decor with a sharpie if you want
The third character is Shumadan. Cut out a larger silhouette of green paper, make hair of darker green paper and spruce it up with bold yellow and green touches trimming off the excessive paper. Glue the hair to the body and add eyes – these are kidney-like pieces of white paper. Glue yellow lips to the bod, attach two white teeth and add yellow lines to the body. Make short green legs and longer green arms decorated with yellow and green paper of another shade. And again – take a black sharpie to draw every detail and line up the character. Attach an ice cream stick decorating it as you like
Now it’s time for some decor! Fold a sheet of black paper and then draw a tree with a pencil, cut it out getting two trees
Decorate them with green and yellow and pink and burgundy circles
Line up each decoration with a black sharpie
Cut out large blue flowers and decorate them with details of lighter shade of blue and pink, then line up the details with a sharpie
Make matching blue stands for the flowers
Now your children can play with the characters from their favorite cartoon!
